    Might as well go ahead and tell us that there will be gear packs to buy for DR for the low price of $69 for one piece. How did you think this was going to be received?? They day before you drop him??
  • You all complain but until you all stop dropping so much $$$ on moves like this, things will only get worse. We all know most of you will spend anything to gear him up. Smart business move in my opinion. 🤷🏼‍♂️

    pretty much haha most dont have enough in them to resist not spending
  • your all gonna buy it so... why make it fair? im only holding on because my great guild if wasnt for them id be quitting now. EA's SW greed on this game is out of control.
    No. Just No.
  • I read it somewhere before. Maybe the required pieces will be a part of the journey. Like rewards for a certain tier. Hopefully it will be enough to completely equip it for DR.

    Also this new gear probably means - all new toons will need them.
    Which means! You now must choose to farm hardnodes for shards or normal nodes for this piece of gear no one has. Or of course pay.

    I think this will be a bottle neck inside a bottle neck only to get to 2-3 more
    Bottle necks.
  • Really hoping this is just future proofing for new toons, and that these items will be part of the rewards in full for obtaining DR.

    Otherwise this is an extraordinarily blatant cash grab on top of the cash grab. Very underhanded move.
    Porgatory demands fresh souls.

    I think it depends on the community's reaction, that's why they kept a few details for tomorrow.

    1. Telling us after everyone finds out through datamining is why there is a lack of trust. Its underhanded
    2. Inventing two new gear pieces that are a pain to farm just to frustrate all the players who worked hard to unlock him is a bad move. They unlocked a toon they were looking forward to but cannot use it for a few weeks
    3. 100 pieces needed for one full craft. Its purple gear so I'm expecting the next 50 toons to require 10 of these each. Its the worst farmable gear so far. Assuming the same crystal cost as carbanti and other purple gear, you need 2800 crystals to fully craft one gear piece
    4. Farming location limited to a normal node sucks
    5. 20% drop rate for purple gear needs to be revisited
    6. Can't trust you guys not to pull this stunt with every new toon y'all plan to release, whether it be marquee, legendary, journey etc.

    I think you've nailed all the pertinent points in my opinion.

  • Thank you for saving my money.
    I invested money to be ready for this event. That was the first time... and will be the last time.
  • At least its not carbantis or stun guns lol. Well played EA

    It's not, becouse players already had those horded for a while now.
  • I'm just glad they aren't stun guns and carbantis. We get a new gear to bottle neck us with new toons so maybe they will relax on the other gear
  • Can we please discuss this? It's great that we're having new gear added (not really). I think there's a lot of better times to release new gear like this so why is this being dropped on us randomly within 24 hrs from release of Darth Revan?

    Will this new gear be purchasable with $$$$ the same time Darth Revan releases? I'm curious how the community would react if that were to happen. And people are speculating it will take over 1,500 energy to get both pieces. That's a WHOLE lot of energy.

    What does everyone think about this sudden drop?


    LINK TO GEAR. It's on gear 8 and gear 9.

    I really don't get why everyone is so upset. Just farm the gear, what's the problem?

    So you and everyone else will have Darth Revan at gear 8 for a few days rather than gear 12 immediately. I fail to see why that's making people angry.

    Think people are just looking for a legitimate explanation....

    *shrugs* Something different to farm from the Mk5 AK/K Stun Gun stuff? Sounds like a good reason to me.
    You'll still need to farm stun gun on top of this. At least with stun gun, you need 50 of one gear and you can find it in Shard Shop and GET store, events (like forest moon) for free. Carbanti you get weekly. I'd take Carbs over this any day
  • A new low... deva please update the name of the game from galaxy of heroes to Galaxy of Revan

    Because no-one wants new G8 & 9 pieces, there's already a gear wall there, we don't want it to be bigger, plus a lot won't be able to gear him until he's G12, as most have sliced their good mods to 6 dots, that only can be put on a G12 toon, and most toons are worthless at G8

    I dispute the claim that "no one wants new G8 & 9 pieces". I think it's good. Stops every character needing the same darned gear. And if some people have changed all their mods to 6 dots then maybe, just for a few days, maybe Arena won't come down to who has the best mods. And for once, those with the best mods don't get an automatic advantage over everyone else each time a new character comes out.
    *happy sigh* Sounds good to me.

    You mean like how after the game first came out people moaned about how it was "Galaxy Of Rebels" and then things changed and people are now moaning there's a different focus?
    Meh. Wait a while, it'll be "Galaxy of Resistance" before the end of the year.

    I'm waiting for "Galaxy Of Ugnaughts" ...
  • The new gear for Revan is a minor annoyance. I will be less annoyed if this means new toons will also require this gear letting EA ease up on stun guns and carbantis. That's my hope.

    Except he also requires 300 carabantis and 150 stun guns...

    Yeah. I never said he didn't. I said if people can't instantly give him their best mods, that might be a good thing.
  • Does the gear come out same time as the Dr Evan event?

    I view them as stun guns with another name and maybe even slightly less available. Like only on 2 nodes.

    You can be sure that a lot will still have him maxed ASAP, this gear will not benefit you to become more even with those you are talking about(only if they quit, because of this) This will go down as other cash grabs, a lot of complaining, but people will pay anyway
    My biggest concern is future toons, that will most likely have this new gear, plus the old G8 & 9, making future toons even harder to farm gear for
